BASC APPOINTS NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF CONSERVATION
The UK’s largest shooting organisation has appointed Caroline Bedell as its executive director of conservation. Caroline has more than 25 years’ experience of the rural economy and environment. After obtaining a degree in rural land management, she qualified as a rural practice chartered surveyor.

The second half of her career was spent with the Country Land and Business Association (CLA), where she lobbied government at national level on issues relating to public rights of way and open access.
She then became Midlands director and led the regional team’s policy and lobbying activities, engaging with MEPs, MPs and a wide selection of committees and boards.
Caroline said: ‘I am privileged and honoured to be appointed to this exciting new role and I look forward to working with the experienced staff team and BASC members to raise public awareness of the vital and important work that shooting undertakes for rare habitats and species in the UK.’
Caroline Bedell is poised for the new role.
